WE USE THE T-SHIRT AS A CANVAS TO PROMOTE LGBTQ EQUALITY, PRIDE, VISIBILITY AND JUSTICE.
We believe in the power of this little article of clothing to spread a message far and wide. The t-shirt is accessible, it is personal, it is interpreted differently than other mediums because there is real a person inside of it.
WE MAKE GRAPHICS & PRODUCTS THAT SPARK CONVERSATION & RAISE AWARENESS.
The conversations that happen when people wear our shirts are a part of our mission to promote LGBTQ pride, increase visibility and advance equality and justice. All of our shirts have a story and you can read about them in our shop!
WE OFFER RESOURCES FOR AND ABOUT LGBTQ PEOPLE.
We provide a collection of resources on our website – everything from information about anti-oppression, transgender health, internalized homophobia, and LGBTQ art history. Every resource we have comes with references for further reading and links to other organizations where additional support can be found. We believe that the LGBTQ fight for equality is bound to all other struggles for social, economic and environmental justice and we try to reinforce that vision through our resources.
WE ATTEND LGBTQ PRIDE EVENTS.
Revel & Riot has attended pride in San Francisco, New York City, Montreal, and Toronto. In 2014 we designed all the official t-shirts for World Pride, and marched in the parade with an amazing contingent of supporters. LGBTQ Pride events are actually what inspired the name Revel & Riot. It’s the range of expression and emotion that occurs at pride demonstrations, rallies, marches, and parties that we hoped to encompass in our name. The celebration and the fight; the love and the hate; the revel and the riot, are some words to describe that unique duality present at LGBTQ pride events worldwide.
WE DONATE TO OTHER LGBTQ ORGANIZATIONS.
Each year we donate a part of our proceeds to other LGBTQ organizations. We also offer special deals and discounts on our t-shirts to LGBTQ groups and community organizations. We have raised over $20,000 for the Pulse Victims Fund in Orlando. We have donated hundreds of t-shirts to GSA groups.
WE DO COLLABORATIONS.
We have made t-shirts with Tegan and Sara, the band Fun. and LSTW magazine. We designed the official merchandise for World Pride 2014 and Pride Toronto 2015. We were featured in the documentary 100% T-shirt. We were on The Campus Consciousness Tour in 2013.
REVEL & RIOT IS AN LGBTQ-RUN NON-PROFIT ORGANIZATION. Our funding comes entirely from the sales of our t-shirts, and donations. Thank you very much for your support.
